Prince Charming to the rescue! It isn't every day that you get the Duke of Cambridge flying you in an air ambulance. On Tuesday afternoon, Prince William was part of a rescue team that helped airlift a nine year old girl involved in a car crash in Leighton Buzzard, the BBC reports. Wills, who recently began working as an air ambulance co-pilot for the East Anglican Air Ambulance, was pictured at the crash scene in the town of Linslade.

The young girl was walking along Old Road when a silver Ford and blue Mercedes crashed, knocking her over. Suffering from a broken pelvis and legs, a rapid response vehicle, an ambulance officer and air ambulance co-piloted by Prince William attended to the victim at the scene. Wills helped to fly the youngster to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

This was Prince William's first rescue mission since starting his job at the life-saving charity following his paternity leave for the birth of his daughter, Princess Charlotte.
